Our new 2014 Crusader 325res observations

we use the washer/dryer area for towels and clothes hamper storage - on the plus side we have a cool kitchen faucet with a real sprayer - you don't realize how much you use one of those little things until you do not have one - have not seen one like it but it came that way 👍

They had that model too but, the wife liked the double frige with the stainless steel doors and the queen sleeper and was willing to give up the bigger bathroom and pantry for it.

we don't use the sleeper sofa - it is for grandkids 😄- and we are on a seasonal spot so we like the pantry and bath setup - it is puzzling to know they offer so many differences in the so-called same model numbers....

It is just different packages. The wife noticed last night when you take the cushions off the Sofa there is a separation with velcro to connect so you actually canmake another smaller one person bed (at least that is what we think it is for).

No real function for that Velcro other than style of cushion. If the bed idea works for you go for it.

DW feels the same way.She feels it's just to keep the cushions tight and straight. We'll have to double check when we take the cover off in a few weeks.

Sofa Bed

Unless they have changed the sofa out, do not try sleeping on that thing, it will kill you, most un-comfortable!!!!

Kickster, The furniture was all upgraded since 2011. Every thing is Lane furniture on the 2014s. Our 2012 sofa bed was the one with the air bed or air mattress. Our 2014 looks to be much more comfortable.

BTW, keep a good log on your you trip to Alaska. We're planinig a 2015 trip to Alaska, so we'll have plenty of questions for you and DW if you don't mind.

Up-Grades

Yep, we have he air mattress, blow it up, put it down like you are going to sleep on it, after about an hour, your head is about 5 degrees lower than your feet! No way to fix that unless you take the whole thing apart, since no one ever sleeps on it, just left it like it is: We did put the air mattress down in the master:

The Sleeper Sofa in our Rockwood was crappy too. We have one of those nice infllatable ones in a bag that we use. I have a 12 volt Coleman air pump that blows it up in a few minutes. We only use it once a year when we meet a large group of people at the Peace River in Arcadia, Fl.
